A Night for You

meet me by the card house
my room is two oh four
I'll take you on your birthday
and toss you out the door

I'll delegate your future
I'll make you hit the brim
toss it all on black jack
but the payout odds are slim

remember sixteen living days
remember your first shots
blow the candles out on the balcony
turn the light off on your plots

keep the screaming in your head
you have grown to hide these things
celebrate a year of dark
and wish for a futures' lesser sting

'A night for you'... One of my newer faves. Everything you write is vivid and paints pictures in the readers head. This ones 'picture' is beautiful... In MY head. :) All of These should be put into a single book. I dont think you really know just how good you are!
